Median home values adjusted for inflation nearly quadrupled over the 70-year period since the first housing census in 1940. The inflation adjusted median value of single-family homes in the United States rose from $45,761 in 1940 to $179,900 in 2010.
So, what do you think? Is buying a home a good investment?
I have access to multiple mortgage products and services to meet your unique needs when it comes time to renew your mortgage, refinance to consolidate debt, take equity out of your home for renovation purposes, or even lease business-related equipment.
With access to more than 90 lending institutions, including big banks, credit unions and trust companies, I’m familiar with a vast array of available mortgage products – ranging from financing for the self-employed to financing for those with credit blemishes.
And, best of all, I work for you – not the lenders – ensuring you always receive the best mortgage product and rate to serve your specific needs. Based on the high volume of business I fund, lenders offer me better discounts on mortgages that I can further pass on to my clientele.
With interest rates continuing to fall to historic lows, refinancing your existing mortgage and switching to a lower rate may save you a lot of money – possibly thousands of dollars per year. Imagine what you could do with the savings – anything from renovating or investing to going on a much-needed vacation or putting money towards your children’s education.
By refinancing now and paying off high-interest debt, such as credit cards, you can put yourself and your family in a better financial position.
If your current mortgage is up for renewal, you’re thinking of refinancing your mortgage or you’d like to discuss your options, please give me a call.
